Free live music is the best kind.
This open mic thing just started in Bath on Friday, I wasn’t going to bother going but the guy who organised it gave me a ticket anyway and I didn’t have anything better to do.
I’m sooo glad I did decide to go.
The night started off with a bit of comedy from James & Matt’s Fantabulous Band, this was a good way to set the tone for the evening.
Marstin & the Revelators were also pretty cool. They won Moles’ Student Battle of the Bands.
James M was brilliant, his solo acoustic performance of Radiohead’s Black Star has been stuck in my head ever since. His duet with Sarah K playing Cello and singing Damien Rice’s Volcano was also amazing, I didn’t know the song before, but I’m not gonna forget it in a hurry.
Oh yeah, all the acts are Christians, either members of, or with links to Bath CU or Bath Spa CU.
Thanks to Chris H for recording the Black Star video, unfortunately if he recorded Volcano he hasn’t put it on facebook yet. Here’s the original:
